Hi,

I need to implement https in my application. Currently the application requests are served by "apache http" server then the requests are forwarded to the tomcat server. So can anybody tell how to implement SSL in this case and how configure tomcat.


Regards,

Configure the apache server for SSL. Make sure that the (virtual) host that handles tomcat proxying (mod_jk or mod_proxy) is configured to listen for TLS requests (port 443, by convention). The encryption actually ends at the Apache server and all traffic goes to the proxy unencrypted, but since that's in the DMZ, only really paranoid people worry about it. Especially since the proxy protocol isn't plain text.

You can probably encrypt the proxy pipeline as well, but I've never had the need to.
